The post in our link for today is interesting as the writer makes a connection between symptoms for Dyslexia and Dyscalculia. The point being that both learning disabilities are related and often are both present. By looking at these symptoms and realizing that they may be in indication for both, you’ll be ahead of the game for detection.
Dyscalculia is one of the less well-known learning problems in mathematics due to lack of exposure and study. Children with dyscalculia usually face arithmetic and symbolic number comparison issues, with about 3-6 percent of individuals affected. The lack of wide-ranging study and inconsistency in the condition’s characterizations through studies have impeded progress in identifying the root causes of dyscalculia and how best to handle it. This problem can be more serious because it can prolong up to adulthood. Therefore, this paper will discuss the general aspects related to dyscalculia problems and their effects on children in their lives. This paper also explains the signs and symptoms that are needed to understand children who may have dyscalculia. Finally, this paper discusses what treatments or methods can be used significantly to help children improve their mastery and mathematical skills,

Here is someone who has trouble reading price tags on products and the solution they propose is to develop a new number system for people with dyscalculia. A system that would make more sense and would be easier to decipher.
How about that? Do you believe there is merit to it. See the proposal in our link for today.
Edutopia has a nice article with tips to help your student finish their homework. Dr Schreuder also has a video series to help you work on the child’s math homework, see that at https://MomsTeachMath.com
Parents, Teachers and Tutors together with the students are the four legs that math support rests on.
Certainly students with dyscalculia need the extra support from Tutors and Parents and in uor link for today some ideas on what Parents can do together with the teacher to keep the math learning on track
To support these efforts we have organized a major reduction on the price of our “Moms Teach Math” video series, that is meant for parents trying to help their children at home with the math homework. Take advantage of this offer, click the picture.
